Graham Rickson of theartsdesk.com has a great new review for our San Francisco Ballet Orchestra Bizet release:
“So it makes perfect sense for a crack ballet orchestra to record the work and Martin West’s San Francisco Ballet forces play the work beautifully; this disc oozes frothy joie de vivre. Musically there’s little to surprise, but the symphony does it what it does with swaggering confidence and bucketloads of brio. It’s a work which will raise a smile, for all the right reasons. West’s upper strings are superbly agile in the Finale, darting about on top of an oompah bass line. Irresistible. …
All is brilliantly played. And this is a Reference Recording, so the sound is rich and detailed. A lovely disc.” — Graham Rickson, theartsdesk
